    I’m not sure yet but I’ll let you know once I’ve come to a conclusion. With regard to Griffin the bulk of his success was coming from a hot putter so I keep avoiding him expecting that to cool, but this past week I think he actually struck the ball a bit better and it compensated for the putter cooling, so maybe he’s got more talent than I thought.

    Thanks! I think I’ll take a shot because of the lack of options.

    Do you or someone else have any info about some young guys I don’t recognize, notably Perras, Phillips, Bailey and Cole Hammer (how cool is that name)? Someone posted about Brandon Wu last week, so I didn’t include him.

    A few FWIW notes I read on one site in regards to what to look for:

    G.C. of Houston the 42nd hardest course to score on in 2018 and the weather was perfect.

    In 2017 when conditions were overcast with some showers over the weekend with the wind blowing 10 and 20 mph the course played to a 71.98 average and was 24th hardest on tour.

    Proximity to the hole because the greens are smooth (44th hardest last time) to hit, but it’s essential to get it close to the pin from the fairway.

    For the week Golf Club of Houston was T-24th for the year with the players hitting it an average of 34 feet, 11 inches away Poulter was T-4th in Greens hit and 29th in proximity to hole

    Scrambling is very important in the Houston Open. It ranked 48th on Tour, and Poulter was T-14th showing the importance of getting it up and down from off the green.

    Par Breakers. Last year the course ranked 32nd as Poulter was T-1st in this stat.

    I think it’s difficult to lose money with a 6/6 team. Out of 65 players making cut, you have a 64% chance one or more of your players is top 10.

    So, is Lanto Griffin legit, and is Xinjun Zhang legit? I want to jump on the train but I’m scared it’s too late and the possible lack of talent gets back to them.

    You just named two golfers in my single LU. Hope this helps.

    Almost guaranteed to cash with 6/6 but real hard to do now. One comparison of before-after the cut rule change:

    In the big GPP in the Northern Trust, 21% of entries hit 6/6, 40% hit 5/6, 28% 4/6. 59% of the 6/6 cashed. 14% of the 5/6 cashed. 0.6% of 4/6 cashed.

    In the most recent Shriners — 5% of entries hit 6/6, 22.6% hit 5/6, and 36% 4/6. 97% of 6/6 cashed, 64% of 5/6, 11% of 4/6, and we even had 13 3/6 entries cash (0.1% of the 3/6).

    Agreed it is very hard to do now, but just a heads up that the Northern Trust was the first event of the FedEx cup playoffs so it had a limited field of 125 before the cut to 70 so an even higher proportion of the field made the cut making 6/6 a lot easier

    Yeah good point. I didn’t have anything prior to that one handy. What was typical 6/6 in regular season. Mid-teens or so, wasn’t it?

    It really varied a lot week to week depending if the main chalk value plays made the cut but I would say most weeks it was in the 5-15% range 6/6 and usually like 15-30% 5/6

  • Steverino01

    The only 6/6 I’ve failed to cash is at the Masters each of the last 2 years, but like 70% of the field makes the cut.

    Graham DeLaet way too cheap?

    He should be free

    Go back to last week and go through his shot tracker play by play – not good

    He missed almost 2 years with a back injury and multiple surgeries – his ball striking/distance control was off and his putting has not improved from where it was

  • lfn1992

    My Breida LU cashed today, imagine how much better it would have been had I not put the inactive 49ers goalline RB AS MY TEAM CAPTAIN

    Then I played golf

  • mtdurham

    So I went 100% zhang his first two weeks on tour and got him at below 1% both weeks.

    The third week I figured he would gain some momentum and I went to 16% zhang and last week I dropped to no zhang (only played 1 lineup0)

    Hes over 30 years old and he is a par maker. Save him for the tough courses now that he won’t go unowned.

    When he was an unknown and low price he was autoplay IMO.

    But yeah 4 weeks ago I wouldn’t have even typed “I’m 100% zhang” I was hoping I could take down the best ball with him practically midprice and under 1% every week

    Cole Hammer is an Amateur – still goes to school at Texas; a very high ranking amateur playing his first PGA Tour event (think he played in US Open before). I think his upside is limited this week but could sneak thru the cut in the weaker field. I won’t have any.

    It was not his first few weeks on tour – he was on the PGA Tour two years ago and finished 167th in Fed Ex losing his card so he played last year on Web/KornFerry re-earning his PGA Tour card back for this year.

    He’s not that great – he’s had a couple good weeks in weak fields (with no depth after the top 5-10 salaries) so he may keep his card this year but I don’t expect him to crack the top 100 at end of season.

    He was only an unknown to you – the rest of us know him from 2 years ago – that’s why he was so low owned!

    He wasnt unknown to me. He got kicked off tour for cheating scorecards in Landofnesia. Hes arguably the 2nd best of the children of the korn.

    You dont have to try to argue every post I make. He was a great play the last month. Just admit it. Now hes not unknown, hes not minpriced, And hes the Asian bill haas.

    I can’t even discuss a chalk play like Zhang anymore. Not after going all-in two weeks in a row.
    I subscribe to the God of the
    Tomb of the unknown golfer

    You eat the children of the Korn I’ll eat their first borne. I need god to throw me another lamb.

    I just got a great idea for a punt this week! I’m all in!

  • byo34

    Pretty sure I’m going to go 100% Henley this week in my 8 lineups, either going to work out or not! 50/50 right?

    Can you elaborate on this strategy?

  • keephustlincuz

    Is there a reason why DK does not have Nick Taylor in the player pool?

  • Jeddy3

    So, I’m hearing this as Bentgrass greens from podcasts, but Fantasy National has it as Bermuda. Can someone tell me for sure what we’re working with here?

    I don’t see him in the field on the Google Doc (Smart Golf Bets) sheet – you sure he’s playing ?

    I think he was in the initial field as he must have committed and then WD before DK released salaries

    Should be Bermuda

    When they played here annually in March, they would have been over seeded likely with a bent/rye mix over the winter as Bermuda does not like cold weather and goes dormant so most courses oversees with a more friendly cold weather grass.

    Since it is October, these should still be considered Bermuda as they would not have been overseeded yet

    As a side note, this sounds typical of podcast dudes/touts who have never been on a golf course or never on one more than 5 miles from their basement apartment.

    Thanks Bif! Knew I could count on ya!

    I noticed him on FD then checked DK and he wasn’t there.

    Sad to say you aren’t the only one that did this last night and I did it in 75% of my milly sateys. I was on my way to my Monday bowling league for the 30 minutes before lock and didn’t get a chance to check my lineup before lock so when I did check it a few minutes after lock, I could have screamed. Now I got to do some homework on the Thursday game if I want to get any milly tickets for this Sunday.

    Anyways, would imagine with the course probably playing soft with all the rain they have had there, ball striking and hitting fairways will be crucial in order to score.
